Power Integration has published a reference design for a USB Power Delivery (PD) charger based around its InnoSwitch3-PD PowiGaN gallium nitride flyback switcher and HiperPFS-4 PFC controller.

The DER-937 reference design contains the power supply specification, schematic, PCB layout, bill of materials, detailed magnetics specifications and performance data of a power factor corrected (PFC) 100 W USB PD 3.0 + Programmable Power Supply (PPS) charger using only 117 components.

“This USB PD charger design reaches efficiency levels in excess of 93%, including input, PFC and flyback stages,” said Aditya Kulkarni, senior product marketing engineer at Power Integrations. “Its no-load performance is also excellent – the circuit requires less than 40 mW no-load input power at 230 VAC. BOM count is approximately half that of conventional designs, saving space, reducing design time and simplifying component sourcing for high-volume manufacture of slim, ultra-compact OEM and aftermarket chargers.”

The InnoSwitch3-PD INN3870C off-line quasi-resonant flyback switcher combines a USB Type C and USB PD controller, high-voltage PowiGaN gallium-nitride switch, synchronous rectification and FluxLink feedback. The HiperPFS-4 PFS7628C PFC controller IC, available with an integrated Qspeed low-reverse-recovery-charge (Qrr) boost diode, delivers greater than 98% efficiency across the full load range.
